Collin Raye’s Upcoming Concert on May 30 to Violate Utah’s State Directive Limiting Gatherings

Collin Raye is set to headline a free concert at Barnes Park in Kaysville, Utah, on May 30 that would openly defy the state’s ban on gatherings of more than 50 people due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The concert is being organized by the Utah Business Revival and supported by Kaysville Mayor Katie Witt (Rep.), who is also running for Congress in Utah’s 1st District.

“Hopefully, this concert will inspire similar events in other states around the country as we try to unify and start pushing back against the effects of this pandemic,” said Collin in a statement. “We will be utilizing the recommended sensible safety precautions, and I’m confident it will be a huge success for small businesses, and hopefully, the country at large.”

While much of the state is moving from “orange” (moderate risk) to “yellow” (low risk) per Governor Gary Herbert’s announcement on May 14, gatherings of more than 50 people are still prohibited.

“Come support our local businesses, listen to country music, and be a pioneer and a patriot with us,” said Mayor Witt in a statement.

The outdoor event will also feature booths allowing nonessential businesses to sell their goods and services.

The Utah Business Revival’s press released noted: “Please be respectful to those who social distance at seven feet. Feel free to wear the proper protection.”
